For large files, scp might be faster. It depends.

Not with the existing Tramp packages. One ould introduce a new method
"sshfs", which works similar as in tramp-gvfs.el: mount the sshfs
"filesystem" on a temporary mount point, and map silently file names
like "/sshfs:host:/path/to/file" to "/mount_point/path/to/file".

Processes on the remote host could be handled similar to the handling
for the "ssh" method.

I will add an entry to Tramp's todo list. Unfortunately, I am short in
time, if there is a volunteer ...
